Re: Crap end to the weekend.

Hello Stu,

My lad did the same with his Clio - Insurance paid up okay, so hopefully you'll be right.

Re: Tarp setups for windy conditions?

I usually pitch an asymmetrical Holden as it seems to work well in most conditions.

Re: Bivvy a month 2020.

Nobody has been mean to me because of my sexuality, I have never wished to be different, but there are small things other people could do at no cost to them that would take away almost all of the negative aspects of being ace. Accepting people are different is massive. Complaining about lack of rep...

They would find him by following the scent of smelly cyclists (in May.)

Re: Bar Ends, on the Inside

The sq-labs above are quite comfortable. I use them with a pair of cut down ergons and they are just the right height and thickness.

Re: Bar Ends, on the Inside

Not Togs but a bar end inboard is what I mean, though I suppose I could use an accessory bar, as they hinge to fit. I suppose a short spur like a shortened bar end is what I meant.[/quote] Maybe these would do: https://www.sq-lab.com/shop/en/New-products/SQlab-Innerbarends-411.html[quote][/quote] Co...

Re: What's in your hip flask?

Not really keen on spirits so I take either methadone or mushroom tea. If it's a special occasion, then a mix of the two. It helps with the alien abduction trauma.

Preference would be long sleeved if possible.

It would be nice if there bear was on the front on one side of the chest perhaps, above the legend.

A wet dream for the gentleman who is at the extreme end of delighting in being walked on.

Re: What you doing next year?

I've been thinking of riding to all the locations that used to be called Gropec**t Lane in days of yore, still just in the thought process at the moment but I do know that, coincidentally, if you plot them all on a map and then dot to dot them, it forms a representation of a giant phallus.

WRT and BB200 all being well. I'm going to start having a pick at some of the ITTs on the self-supported website - The Peak 200 in particular is unfinished business. BP Hungary are talking about a 1400km wiggley ride, border to border, which I might give a go. I've been thinking of riding to all the...

I visit STW forum every day but gave up posting on there donkeys years ago, mainly due to the big hitters on there seemingly taking issue with folk for sporting purposes. That said its positives outweigh its negatives. I visit here everyday too and feel far more at home, even though I don't post ver...

Re: More stolen bikes

If you have the serial numbers - Stick them on the Immobilise website. You may be surprised by how far away decent bikes end up and quite a few get recovered but never traced back to owner as they aren't registered. Depending on your property make up, those Ring doorbell jobs are quite effective. My...

Re: If you go down in the woods today....

Looking at the density, if there were any in Wales, I'm pretty sure that Stu would send us through one on a BB200.

I wonder how many would make it to the far side? I've noticed a few BBers have a hint of Cheech and Chong about them.
